Ancient & Medieval History Musical Theater Scripts

Musical Theater Scripts

Featuring Legends, Folk Tales and a few hard-to-believe actual pieces of history.

 Character role models can be found imbedded in folklore, legends, biographies and stories from many nations around the globe. Some have stood the test of time, others are so remarkable they deserve to be told and retold. Bringing these stories to life through drama ensures that the stories become memory-builders.
